Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said Monday that the House should take steps toward impeaching President Trump, saying she believes that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report revealed evidence of obstruction of justice.
“We have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has been conducted which has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice. I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment,” Harris said at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire.
Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election concluded that the Trump campaign did not conspire or coordinate with Russia, but the special counsel did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.
Harris is one of the few 2020 Democratic candidates to call for impeachment. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) last week called on the House to start impeachment proceedings, citing a section of Mueller’s report in which he wrote that Congress has the authority to conduct obstruction of justice investigations.
